I have encountered this error:
cli_negprot: SMB signing is mandatory and we have disabled it.
26595: protocol negotiation failed
SMB connection failed
when I am attempting to mount a windows xp machine from a linux machine:
mount -t smbfs //machine/share /root/smb_mnt -o
I have looked through the archives and found the following information
concerning this problem, with their attempted solutions:
The possible solution appears to be:
>What does your smb.conf say about signing? Have you disabled it?
>'client signing = yes'
>should do the trick.
I have enabled this option, and it has not resolved the problem:
I have looked through all online references/mailing lists via google, and
have not found a working solution.
I am running smbclient version:
Here is my smb.conf file:
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n
obey pam restrictions = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
wins server = xxx.xx.xxx.xx
encrypt passwords = yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passdb backend = smbpasswd guest
dns proxy = no
netbios name = MYHOSTNAME
server string = %h server (Samba %v)
invalid users = root
workgroup = MYDOMAIN
security = domain
syslog = 0
panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
max log size = 1000
#client use spnego = yes
client signing = yes
server signing = yes
#client NTLMv2 auth = yes
use client driver = yes
Replace MYDOMAIN,MYHOSTNAME,wins server, with my correct information.
Any advice you can give me concerning this is much appreciated.
